I need to replace the backing up light bulb in a 2003 Beetle convertible. I see the two screws and I have tried to loosen them. When I do the outside cover starts to come away from the bumper. But after a bit of turning the stem starts to move with the nut. Just want to make sure I am doing this correctly before I go to far with it. Seems like I should be able to just remove the light bulb without removing the entire bracket.

The Bentley manual says to remove the nuts and pull the housing out of the bumper toward the rear. Try brushing the dirt off the threads and applying oil before turning the nuts.

I'm having the same trouble with ours. Tried applying PB Blaster before searching here. The nut and stud/bolt still turn as one. :(
